Design Innovation Programme

Design Thinking is a pedagogy used to improve teaching and learning effectiveness by motivating high levels of communications and interactions in class. It also encourages open-mindedness and nurtures thinking in multiple perspectives.

In the Design Innovation programme, we aim to introduce a new learning experience to students with a view to enhancing skills such as creativity, problem-solving, communication and teamwork. Following the five-stage process, we will organize different events such as workshops, pop-up classes, and courses to cultivate students’ creativity and communication in the classroom and encourage multi-perspective thinking in problem-solving.
